Episode description:

In the ninth episode of this series, Julio discusses “Triumph and Disaster: Two Impostors”. In this chapter, he emphasises the importance of maintaining a balanced perspective in leadership, particularly in the face of success and failure.

Julio explains ‘triumph’ and ‘disaster’s’ capability to be deceptive to our goals, impairing our judgement and stopping us from taking risks. He emphasises the significance of remaining vigilant in the face of success and not becoming excessively self-assured or complacent. He recommends that leaders not let failures discourage them but view them as opportunities to learn and improve.
